Circumfluere, March 2015
Joint piece – Lorna Barrowclough & Hondartza Fraga
Circumfluent means flowing around, surrounding. Circumfluere is the original Latin verb, literally ‘to float about’.
“This work combines two ideas: Hondartza’s design of a world’s ocean map, and Lorna’s collages made out of the sea areas of old maps. The collage is composed from photos of old maps taken by the artists. The map presents a view of all the world’s seas as one unique mass of water, the land is omitted, only the coastline remains as one continuous edge to the body of water.”
Material: Laser cut mdf, photo collage

For What It’s Worth, March 2015
This piece looks to visually show salt in it’s universal and unifying role of both the land and the sea – interlinking both through how it is gathered, transported, distributed and finally consumed. A commodity which has taken it’s place as a vital tool for preserving, creating wealth and maintaining communities of people. I am fascinated by the simple quiet life that it now lives out.
